of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he great concern. but you could not answer that question with certainty of what epic failure governor romney and republicans believe has happened over the past four years under this president's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle
the obama campaign is saying and what the romney campaign is not. >> a favorite talking point of the obama campaign is mitt romney's economic proposals would simply reinstate the tax cut and deregulation policy that led to the 2008 financial meltdown. two things should be said about this claim. one is it's gone unanswered by the romney camp and the second is it's utterly invalid. the tax cut put in place under president bush in 2001 and 2003 cannot be blamed for the mortgage market collapse that triggered the great recession. in fact, they can be credited with helping the economy out of the recession of 2001, 2002, and with helping overcome the economic damage from hurricane katrina. by the way, that expansion, and the tax revenue it produced were sufficient to drive down the federal budget deficit for 2005 through 2007. this despite massive war spending. as for deregulation, president obama himself said former president bush put more regulations in place than he has at the same time frame. it is true that there is one bit of deregulation regularly blamed by the liberal economists for help
comfortably put away. >> bret: look at virginia. we have talked about that state a lot. romney is there delivering the foreign policy speech today. it's in the tossup category. still on this map. is it sliding one way or another? >> there has been clearly been moving to romney in all the states. you are seeing that. the debate did make a difference for him. virginia is going down to wire. i don't think karl and i expect anything different. >> when you talk about polls and independents self-identify as republicans, >> the same thing with democrats is happening for romney. grows two or three points and then all of a sudden the number of people identify as republicans go up in the polls as well. i don't think that the pollsters are rejirging the numbers. something that is happening as a shift now, more people are starting to identify the republicans. >> remember one thing about the debate. the first debate is determinative. that is to say that the result after the third debate tends to mirror what happened in the first debate. if you win the first debate, you generally tend to win
morning. she is filling in. the show is also in talks to get michelle obama on the air. ann romney is in the battleground states of virginia. she greeted cancer survivors and campaign volunteers yesterday in chester. peter in sarasota, florida, on our independent line. we are talking about whether political spouses affect your vote. caller: absolutely not. and i am an independent for u.s. senate in florida. and i'me-in candidate, single with a mensa iq, and i'm the owner of two companies. geraldine ferraro was the best candidate running back years ago. vote for pete. host: let's go to our next call in hindsville, alabama, on our democrat line. good morning. no, they don't affect my vote. they are very intelligent women, but i've already made up my mind. so the spouses don't have anything to do with that. host: do they give more perspective and to who the candidates are? radio station in washington, wtop, says -- do you feel the spouses can give more of a human side to the person? caller: they might try, but most people see what the. candidates the. it's kind of hard for them to cha
mitt romney who talked about 38.5 minutes. that wasn't necessarily an advantage for the president. because romney was widely considered to have won that debate. there was less of a gaffe during the vice presidential debate four years ago. joe biden spoke just under 40 minutes. sarah palin spoke for 40 minutes and 29 seconds. biden and palin stood at podiums. tonight, biden and ryan will be sitting together at a table and that will affect the way they interact, possibly also the amount of time they talk. jessica yellin is at the media center. jim acosta is in the spin room. jessica, set the scene for us. what's going on? >> hi, wolf. i'm actually in the media filing center. this is where the press from around the nation, actually from around the world. there are some people in from koer countries, have come to watch the debate and file their stories. you can see around here, here's our sister company, mark halperin and people from press from all over the place. fili and this is the gymnasium for centre college. usually, they play basketball and sports in here. but tonight, we're wa
coming up later in strategy talk, we'll have the best path to take against mitt romney in the next debate. >>> but up next, a mystery of international intrigue. whose unmanned drone did israel shoot down? >>> plus, rihanna loses the title of "most sexy woman alive." ♪ atmix of energies.ve the world needs a broader that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our partner in brazil, shell is producing ethanol - a biofuel made from renewable sugarcane. >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. sven's home security gets the most rewards of any small business credit card! how does this thing work? oh, i like it!

that the romney campaign want s out there. jack welch was talking about chicago-style number fixing. that would be one thing if these numbers were actually coming out of chicago. they're coming out of the bureau of labor statistics, where you have career professionals who do this job. these aren't political appointees. i think if anybody was cooking the books, you would pretty quickly have a whistle blower coming out of there, saying, hey, wait a second, these aren't the numbers. this is not something that's at all helpful for mitt romney, and it's generally not helpful for the level of intellect on our national discourse right now. >> you know, anne, i've been talking to people on both sides of this thing. let's clear it up right now. because this whole conspiracy, in my experience, in the past 24 hours, has been met with a collective eye roll from people who are democrats and republicans. is there any way the obama administration could actually have cooked up these numbers? >> uh, in a short answer, i would say no. i think the last president who was accused of, and where there was evidence th
? >> reporter: well, talk about a lymentum stopper there, jim. i mean, what it has done it really rob romney of one of his sost reliable lines in his hempaign speeches. i've heard him say over and eser, under president obama, has neyment has never been below 8%. obviously, he's not saying that now. instead what we saw yesterday and what he's going to say here in this rally tonight is it d bed be better and it would be better if he were president, reminding people of just how much americans in this country are struggling and saying those numbers just don't reflect how bad this economy really is. >> axelrod: what else do you expect, jan, in the run-up to the second debate? foreporter: well, what we've already seen is more focus, more aggressiveness coming from governor romney after that debate, but, jim, there is one other thing that is so striking. i've never seen it in the 10 months i've covered this campaign as what we saw last night in st. petersburg, mitt mneyey, very private man, does not like to talk about himself-- eaich is kind of unusual for a nclitician-- told several personal stori
talks about our policy is to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. mitt romney talked about iran not getting a nuclear weapon capability. he's suggesting he would draw the quote unquote red line somewhere south of that. it does suggest that a slightly less tolerance for iran getting close to nuclear weapons. >> i have to admit it sounded like we weren't doing much, we meaning the united states right now, the obama administration. we've, i think, imposed extremely stiff sanctions that appear, according to informations coming out of iran, even from the value of the currency are working. >> that was an area i thought he was unfair. on the president's policy on sanctions are quite extraordinary and it's more than skeptics would've thought. i've written several books and edited them. we have gone farther with international sanctions than anybody thought possible. and they're kicking in. they're kicking in economically, and it's been falling like a rock. no pun intended. what we don't know, what impact that will have on the iranian nuclear program. >> what else can be done? i agree wit
how he can apply them to the ryan/romney ticket as a whole. what they really would like to do is talk a lot about those ryan fiscal policies. things like kucutting spending, reforming medicare, looking at social security. what biden would like to do is talk a lot about those issues. one issue for the vice president, he hasn't been doing a lot of interviews or interactions with reporters. he hasn't really been questioned on a lot of the claims he makes about the ryan budget on the campaign trail. so it's going to be sort of a new thing for him to be questioned by reporters by the moderator, and by the candidate himself on the claims he's making on how those budget policies would impact everyday americans. >> a lot was said four years ago about joe biden's debate with sarah palin. now, he has known congressman ryan for quite some time. they have dealt together. how do you expect the tone to be different? >> well, remember, four years ago, biden had really one big challenge. he didn't want to make any major mistakes. but his only really great big challenge in that debate was sarah palin
that trains republican candidates for office. in the video of mitt romney talking about the 47% of americans that mr. romney says don't pay taxes. and we will get medicare's growing costs with emily etheridge, a health care reporter from rational quarterly. "washington journal" is live everyday at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> will do with the president obama did for the budget. nothing except for borrow and spend. our credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. >> we laid out a 4 trillion-dollar debt reduction plan over the next several days. $4 trillion. ladies and online, these guys go against everything. no, i really mean it. not only do they say that they don't like our plan, i get back, you don't like it. but what is your plan? >> thursday, congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden face-off in their vice presidential debate. you can watch it 7:00 p.m. eastern. both candidates on screen the entire debate. i'll live coverage on c-span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. >> a discussion on mitt romney's foreign-policy plan and the foreign-policy and how
the romney video. ". later we will talk to emily ethridge. she has the story about tackling medicare. first, let's check back in julie sobel of national journal and update on the senate race in arizona. >> this is a race most people have not been paying attention to until recently. it was assumed a republican will hold the seat. congressman jeff flake is a republican in the race. recently polls showing a tied race. people are tuning in realizing that arizona could be a close senate race. carmona is a great recruit for democrat. he served under george w. bush. it's pretty hard for republicans to paint him with the partisan brush that they want to. basically, the argument is that he was recruited by obama and that he'll vote with the democrats which in arizona, it's a state where the fundamentals are republicans and that's kind of going to be the argument against carmona probably throughout this race. host: what should viewers be watching for tonight? >> you definitely going to see that obama called carmona personally to recruit him to run and that he is obama's man in arizona from flake. y
that mitt romney before. coming up, we'll talk to a person who says she debated that mitt romney back in 2002, massachusetts democrat shannon o'brien. >>> sky-high, the price of gas hits an all-time record in california. will the rest of the nation follow? we'll get a live report. >> i'm going to show you how to make a wad of paper. a wad of paper can be a lot of fun, just to play with around the house or maybe toss expertly into a trash can. >> and later, yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is steve martin, but what is the star of "stage and screen" doing in this internet video? the answer is ahead, you're watching msnbc. new prilosec otc wildberry is the same frequent heartburn treatment as prilosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things you want, we make things you didn't even know you wanted. like a spoon fork. spray cheese. and jeans made out of sweatpants. so grab yourself some new prilosec otc wildberry.

's described to me by the romney campaign, that's his nickname, mini mitt. you'll see him talk about the positions, not his positions before he was picked as the nominee, but mitt's position all night. that's the focus. you're not going to see a conversation paul ryan. >> phil, david says, conditions are told, this is veep candidates talk up your running mate, zing your opponent but avoid letting your career or policy ideas barack obama become the focus on the biggest life of the political life it's not about you. that said, when ryan was picked, those who didn't agree with pick said this guy has years of a congressional record, congressional approval rating is in the basement. there's a lot for joe biden to go at paul ryan on. >> and there's a lot for paul ryan to go at joe biden on. so there's four years of failed administration policy for ryan to litigate against president obama and joe biden. so i think if the question is, is there material for examination tonight in kentucky, absolutely there is. and do those issues that you raise, are they likely to come up? absolutely. but wha
in the battleground states. you know, we -- i have been to michigan several times. we talked about can governor romney put pennsylvania into play. both of these states were out of reach, michigan and pennsylvania heading into the first debate. look where they are now. dead heat statistically in the state of michigan, where romney was born. his dad was governor. in pennsylvania, a close race as well with the president oh top. i'm a bit skeptical. i want to see if this happens in a second and third poll but this is vy important. states like this suddenly being in play heading into the final couple of weeks because if the president has to start spending time and money defending pennsylvania and defending michigan, that means less time the president is spending in florida, in ohio, in the western battlegrounds. at the moment the map is expanding, finally the romney campaign would say in its favor. >> interesting. john, thanks. >>> let's dig deeper. let's look forward to round three of the debates on tuesday, where the campaign is headed. joined by patrick millsaps, former chief of staff and paul begala. t
on the sunday talk shows, top obama campaign strategists went after mitt romney accusing him of making false statements. today in port st. lucie he fired about. >> you heard his answers or nonanswers. of course days later we hear his excuses, and next january we'll be watching him leave the wlous for the last time. >> reporter: next romney heads to virginia for a major foreign policy speech at the virginian military institute. after that the gop nominee will campaign in more critical battleground states like ohio and iowa. fred. >> thanks so much, jim. >>> for both presidential campaigns, this week could turn out to be as much of a roller coaster ride as last week was since jobs and the economy are what a lot of voters are worried about. i asked dana millbank of the "washington post," between the debate and new jobs numbers, which is the game-changer? >> well, if you asked it before the jobs numbers came out, fredricka, you certainly would say that this changed the fundamentals of the campaign. however, the jobs numbers very quickly erase some of that. we'll begin to say as poll numbers come
services. then the vice president of spain's largest bank talks about the european debt crisis. that's followed bay discussion on the foreign policy plan laid out by republican presidential nominee mitt romney. >> look at c-span radio at the 15th anniversary amber tweets happy birthday. i have been listening to on the morning commute for years. here to tell us more about the c-span radio is nancy. he's been there since the beginning. tell us about the programming that people can hear on c spainc radio. >> well, as you mentioned, washington journal ever morning beginning at 7:00 a.m. eastern time three hours of interviews, news updates, and your phone calls, e-mails, and tweets. and then after washingtons, and journal we cover a variety of the events from capitol hill to public policy events takes place around the city.cover a today, for example, senatoric chuck schumer, a new york democrat will be speaking talking about the presidential election and tax reform. we'll have it live for you on c-span radio.el antid spean -- speaking of thesn presidential election we cover the debate, th
was talking about mitt romney's performance. and when you're doing that it tends to be an indicator that that side knows that they lost. >> as we look ahead to the town hall, what did joe biden do whether substantive or stylistic that president obama should adopt? >> well, i think that joe biden re-energized the debate and the base of the party. a lot of people wanted to jump ship were panicking. he went out and really got everyone excited again. the president needs to step up in the next debate and do his job. remember, this is the guy who told hillary clinton that you're -- he can really step it up when he chooses to step it up. he need to get a good night's sleep, don't worry about the altitude and really get in there. >> that is so random. really? that's just really a stretch on that one. anyway, so susan, you can expect the president to be a lot tougher this time around, i know. how should mitt romney approach this debate? do you think he's going to be spending a lot of timan inning openings left by paul ryan? >> i don't think they'll get too much into what paul ryan said in hi
to romney's level. you can't make an excuse the second time. talk about a must win. that's the flipside. >> we were saying last week that mitt romney's back was against the wall, and if mitt romney didn't stand up and deliver, the election was over. we were saying that here, and guess what? that was just the case. a lot of freakazoids on the extreme right didn't want to hear. they wanted to blame the pollsters and the media. romney had to stand up and deliver. he stood up and delivered, so we reset the campaign. guess what? the shoe is on the other foot now. if barack obama blows it again like the first debate, i aagree with donny. that creates momentum that pushing mitt romney towards the finish line. >> we focus and talk a lot -- >> by the way, now it's left wingers who are filling my twitter feed calling me a bigot and calling all of us racists because we hate black people because we're saying the truth, mitt romney won the debate. the hatred is coming from the left and there's some desperation over there because obama has to stand and deliver, and nobody can do it for him. >> we foc
to anywhere. >> romney done that to obama. why are we only talking about one side? romney basically called obama on a liar. when he calls on the continuing fb bringcations he is how he is hurt. he flip-flopped on abortion yesterday. what does he stand for? martha: but here he is, to my mind, this is a great, wonderful thing about debates. and particularly in many ways i think the format we saw the other night which was, somewhat unusual format which really allowed them to talk about who they were. what you were seeing up there in many ways, was not the campaigns. i mean you saw the two men. and they had a chance to go at it. >> that's the point. martha: they had a chance to encounter each other when called on it. so it is difficult to say anyway anybody was portrayed in a way that was unfair. >> obama didn't call him a liar during the debate. a lot of people wish he did. he didn't go after romney on some of the prevarications. martha: do you think it would be a good idea. >> i wouldn't use word liar. his feet have to be held to the fire. if you want to make numbers work, what loopholes wil
are baked in at this point. that's been helping the president a little bit since mitt romney has been talk about how bad the economy is, that's been helping in terms of creating a floor for the president but it also means there's a bit of a ceiling, it means people won't get elated about the economy because the number dropped. >> john, i'm curious to know what factors weigh more heavily. is at any time debates or these jobs numbers. we have one more report before the election going to weigh more heavily? >> it's a good question. certainly for the people who are just tuning into the election and who watch the debate last week, for them the debate is the thing that's probably still top of mind. in the long run, though, of course the economy, the way people feel about the direction of the country which is related to their own economic picture that's still the biggest overall driver in this campaign, though. i until think right now in this moment, the debate is still driving a lot of people's vote. >> one more report before the election. as you said we got a trend going. we've seen these numbe
to talk about paul ryan's budget. the idea in general is to tie governor mitt romney -- sorry, tie governor romney to the ryan budget. and as one top democrat put it to me, the idea is to make the case that romney/ryan in electing that ticket means americans would be electing the intellectual leader of the house republicans, as one person put it, that paul ryan is the intellectual leader of the house republicans and he should not be able tonight to duck from any specifics. so, again, we will hear that word, specifics. and look for the vice president to try to get paul ryan to talk about budget details in this debate tonight, wolf. >> jessica, has the vice president done his tour of the actual debate hall yet? >> reporter: he has. he did that tour a little earlier today before 2:00 p.m. he sat in the chair. he looked at the monitor where you get your time cues. and i'm told all that went smoothly. he also before he boarded the plane today leaving from delaware he talked to reporters and he was asked what is his strategy. take a listen to what he said. >> i'm looking forward to it. n
me ask that again. the governor romney talked about reducing tax rates and says he would not balloon the deficit. let me ask your opinion about eliminating the deductions i listed. do we have to eliminate deductions for mortgage interest, state and local taxes, or charitable contributions? >> let me talk to you about one deduction or loophole that i have put legislation in. that is the elimination of loopholes for energy companies and oil companies. my opponent and i both agree that we should eliminate loopholes for energy companies. but she wants to give the revenue to the federal government and i want to give it to the individual at the gas pumps. when you pay for that gasoline, reducing the cost of gasoline. my parents filled up their gas tank, came to my house, and half a day later, that gas pump with 10 cents more a gallon. we can talk about loopholes and one of them is that for the oil companies. but i would give it back to the individual as a reduction of costs. quite where to begin, but let me start with the last thing you said. he introduced the legislation and spent a lot o
minutes for ryan to explain the romney/ryan plan. give all the time he can to ryan to talk about his plan. >> are you saying that vice president joe biden has a propensity for ver basty. >> ryan should talk more. >> should he bring a white board so ryan can do the math? >> i don't think the math adds up. give him a $2 calculator and let him play with it. >> biden has to defend the obama budget out 10, 20, 30 years where everything crashes and burns. he hasn't put a measure on the ballot. the democratic senate hasn't put out a budget and they haven't put out any reforms for entitlements. >> those guys don't want a white board. >> the good thing about obama is with him you get what you -- what he says. he's been very clear the whole time. he wants a balanced approach. he wants to cut here. he wants to raise taxes here. with the hat tricks from romney, you don't know what you're going to get. >> i think grover got into more and you did, van, more substance than we might see tonight. there's going to be all this substance and policy talk, but it's style. these debates are style. which is why
seems to be romney's favor. >> let's talk specifically about battleground states, wisconsin, pennsylvania, new hampshire and michigan were all leading in obama and now considered toss-ups. let's start with wisconsin. what is happening there? >> all those four states as you said were switched by real clear politics. in wisconsin that is where paul ryan is from, mitt romney's running mate. that is only a 2-point race in wisconsin. you have to remember, this is state where back in june there was recall election against scott walker. he won the race. he demoralized the democrats. a lot of activists were saying because president obama didn't come strong in favor of the democratic candidate, it demoralized a lot of democrats there. turnout could be very important. if the democratic turnout is not high, you might see mitt romney win that state. >> patti ann: meanwhile, florida where he is romney is enjoying a 2% advantage. we have david plouffe saying, we are going to get the senior citizens and hispanics. we are going to get florida? >> it's a crucial state for romney to win, one
for watching us tonight. mitt romney versus the kids. that is the sum of this evening's talking points memo. what i am about to tell you is very hard to believe, but every word of it's true. yesterday mitt romney was campaigning in virginia when he saw a group of children we'ving at him from the side of the road. the governor ordered his caravan to stop so he could greet the kids and talk with them, a nice thing to do. here is the photo the associated press took at the meet and greet. a foolish shot that makes romney the butt of stupid jokes. pardon the pun. the picture was taken by photographer evan vucci and never been published. the governor doesn't know there is a child behind him. this is a cheap shot, literally. accompanying the photograph was an article by a.p. reporter lynn elber that chided him for not participate not guilty a nickelodeon special called kids pick the president. a program will be hosted by linda ellerby, a committed leftist and president obama has agreed to appear on it. governor says he passed because the scheduling, but he well knows that she and her crew are devo
't work that way. we have to find out who's the real mitt romney, the one who talked about that he didn't care about -- he didn't have to worry about the 47% of the people or the one who told us in a meeting that he wants to be the president for 100% of americans. that's the challenge for him? >> have you seen the ad by one of his sons? have you seen that ad. >> yes. yes. >> craig rom any. . >> it's very good. it's very, very good. now if all latino voters were to base their decisions solely on this one ad, i think romney's numbers would be much higher because he touched on the fact that his father was born in mexico, he touched upon the fact that his father wants a permanent solution to the immigration issue, but once they see interviews like ours, once somebody asks him to be more specific about latino issues, that's where he doesn't come through. >> at the end we are getting smarter. the hispanic community is getting smarter and more powerful and stronger because just a few years ago, a few elections ago we would have bought anything and by that i mean -- >> a few words in spanish. >
